Dead Space remake directed by former Assassin’s Creed director Valhalla

Former Assassin’s Creed Valhalla director Eric Baptizat has confirmed that he is spearheading the development of the Dead Space remake. He joined EA Motive in April 2021.

For 16 years at Ubisoft, Baptizat has worked as a game designer for Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Unity and Origins, as well as as a director for Valhalla.

Baptizat is the second seasoned Ubisoft developer to join EA Motive. In 2020, Roman Campos-Oriola took over as Creative Director of the studio, who was the Creative Director for For Honor, Lead Designer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and the two-part Nintendo Wii-only shooter Red Steel.

The art director of the Dead Space remake is Mike Yazijian, who is responsible for the artistic component of Dead Space 2.

The developers plan to recreate materials from the original game that were cut or not used. For example, some levels will be completed according to the original plan of the Visceral Games studio, which had to be changed due to technical limitations. Yazijian also wants to use some of the ideas that were prepared for the sequel, but did not come true.

The Dead Space remake will be released on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S. The project has no release date yet.
